Los Angeles-based Fitz and The Tantrums have quickly grown from independent upstarts to bonafide hitmakers. Their current album – titled Fitz and The Tantrums (Elektra) – was released last summer and features their biggest hit to date, “HandClap.” The RIAA-certified Gold single has already gone top 5 on both the Hot AC and Alternative Radio charts, and is currently ascending the Top 40 Radio charts. Fitz and The Tantrums’ eponymous album follows their breakout major label debut, 2013’s More Than Just A Dream, which featured back-to-back #1 Alternative Radio singles in the RIAA-certified Platinum “The Walker” and the RIAA-certified Gold “Out Of My League.” Both singles also enjoyed Top 15 success at Hot AC. The band has performed countless, sold out headlining shows and is always a standout at music festivals around the world, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and more.

James Arthur was crowned the winner of The X Factor U.K.’s ninth season in 2012. His debut single “Impossible” became the biggest X Factor winner’s song of all time, selling more than 1 million downloads and topping charts for several weeks. The buzz around the Middlesbrough-born singer was different to previous champions. He was regarded as the show’s first credible artist; James not only possessed showman-like qualities with an incredible, distinctive voice, but he could back up his stage presence with natural song-writing ability. Following two years away from the spotlight, James returned last fall with his single “Say You Won’t Let Go.” The song shot straight to #1 in his native U.K., where it remained for 3 consecutive weeks. Last fall, James released his second album entitled Back From The Edge, which again went straight to #1 in the U.K. “Say You Won’t Let Go” has topped iTunes charts in more than 20 countries and has since gone on to sell more than 3 million downloads, more than 350 million streams at Spotify, and a quarter of a billion total views at Vevo/YouTube around the globe.
